Code Works With Alert() But Not Without?

Nov 23, 2009

function Search( name, category )
{
var sresults = [];
var sri = 0;
if( category != "Any" )

[Code]...

This is probably the weirdest thing I've ever seen. I know the code works since Firefox will output things, but it ONLY outputs when I throw in an alert statement somewhere in the function that gets called. It doesn't matter if it's at the beginning and just says Hi, but then it will run correctly. Without it, Firefox won't go through the function apparently and won't write out the results. I don't understand why this isn't working or why firefox is doing this.

Alert() Statement Lets Code Work, Remove It, Code Errors Out

Dec 17, 2007

I am a novice, almost to an intermediate-level JavaScript guy, so much of this is new to me. I appreciate your patience reading this.

I have a routine that creates some HTML on the fly (updateFilters() function) and after the HTML is created, I attempt to access some fields (elements) on the form itself.

I works fine if I place an alert() statement after the HTML is created, but when I remove, the code errors out.

I have tried the setTimeout() statement, but I cannot grab the element --- undefined or null is returned. It seems that the form is the only element I can get a handle on --- everything else is undefined or null...

Here is the code:

function editQuery() {
var f;
var x;
var myForm = document.forms[0];
// Get the row filters that were used in the last query..
for (f = 1; f < 16; f++) {
var filter = eval("myForm.FilterList_" + f);
if (filter.selectedIndex > 0) {
var methodElement = element("FilterMethod_" + f);
var methodIndex = methodElement.selectedIndex;
var savedFilterMethodValue = methodElement.options[methodIndex].text;
var choicesElement = element("FilterChoices_" + f);
var choicesIndex = choicesElement.selectedIndex;
if (isNaN(choicesIndex)) {
var savedFitlerValues = choicesElement.value;
}
else {
var savedFitlerValues = choicesElement.options[choicesIndex].text;
}
updateFilters(filter); // update the filters
// take the saved methods and values and then update the selections
// Alert here makes the code work..
// alert("Try this");
// Wait for HTML..
setTimeout("completeEdit()", 1000);
function completeEdit() {
// Since the object was updated, get the object again..
var methodElement = element("FilterMethod_" + f);
for (x = 0; x < methodElement.options.length; x++) {
if (methodElement.options[x].text == savedFilterMethodValue) {
methodElement.options[x].selected = true;
break;
}
else {
methodElement.options[x].selected = false;
}
}
// Since the object was updated, get the object again..
var choicesElement = element("FilterChoices_" + f);
for (x = 0; x < choicesElement.options.length; x++) {
if (choicesElement.options[x].text == savedFitlerValues) {
choicesElement.options[x].selected = true;
break;
}
else {
choicesElement.options[x].selected = false;
}
}
// Only display next row if f = 2..
// If only one row was used, no reason display the next row..
if (f == 2) {
displayNextFilter(f - 1); // display it
}
}
clearTimeout(timeOut);
}
}
}

Do I have to pass the object (the form, the elements) to the completeEdit() function in the setTimeout() statement?

Only Works With An Alert() - Background <div> Doesn't Fine

May 6, 2011

I'm loading images one time after another on the click without AJAX It works fine on GOOGLE CHROME, but not on IE. The images load fine. The background <div> doesn't. It loads the size of the previous image. This is when I goto the nextButton and prevButton function. I also read it is because the image hasn't loaded fully yet. How do I wait until the image has loaded before it continues? If this is correct.

JQuery :: Safari Lightbox Conundum - Only Works If 'alert' Statement Added?

Jan 21, 2011

I have a lightbox (Shadowbox) which opens upon page load. The size and contents of the lightbox are obtained from a query string. Everything works perfectly in Firefox.

However the lightbox does not open in Safari unless I add an alert statement (originally put in so I could debug my code) - see 'alert("about to open Shadowbox");'

Ask The User For Input - Store It In Array And Use An Alert To Check If It Works And Functions?

Dec 8, 2011

i need to ask the user for details about a car, i will not know how many cars are going to be stored and therefore need an array i think. I need the function for asking the user and will need to repeat the code later in a menu. at this stage i just want to ask the user for input, store it in array and use an alert to check if it works?

<html>
<script>
// Purpose: Gather car information and store it in a datbase

var CarDetails = {
RegNum:"",CarMake:"", CarVin:"";

Comment it out and the call to expandone() doesn't go through. I must be missing something obvious, no? Here's the relevant part of the code (it is fired from $(document).ready() ):

I'm trying to run through the simplest tutorials on jquery and for some reason I can't get any of the jquery code to work.I've downloaded jquery and I've made sure that this file is in the same directory as jquery-1.3.2.js.This is the code taken from the tutorial:

Curious Case - Code Does Not Work Without Alert();

Feb 5, 2009

I am putting together a simple edit in place script. For some reason, in order for for the editEffect function I've created to work I need to use the alert function as seen in the code below. I can't figure out the cause of the problem and I believe the root cause is also creating other problems - i.e. in the cancelEdit function the argument "targetElement" is not alerted, but it is successfully submitted as an argument to another function.

/* Edit in place javascript code */
function editLightOn(element){
element.style.backgroundColor = "#ffc";
}
function editLightOff(element){
element.style.backgroundColor = "#FFFFFF";
}

Getting A Code To Open A Java Alert On Another Website?

Apr 14, 2011

My website was recently ftp hacked and a file inserted into it - js.php - which seems to be some sort of advertising spam programme. Having spotted the file I have renamed it to hide it but lots of other sites are still referring into my site looking for this php file. What I would like to do is to *just* open a java alert box on the referring sites to alert the users that the site has been hacked and that they should notify the webmaster so that he can fix his site.The line referring into my site is -

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.mysite.com/js.php"></script>

Is this something simple to do?

It works fine in FF3 however in IE 7 is giving me an error code of Invalid argument on line 6 character 1.

Code Works In Chrome But Not In IE?

Jun 21, 2010

I'm just starting JavaScript and wrote a quick script for Next/Back buttons for a page showing a family outing on our boat. I proudly uploaded the webpage and emailed it out, but people running IE are unable to use the buttons, they simply do nothing.Here is the .js file, I don't think anything in the HTML or CSS is causing the issue but could post those as well if necessary.

var step = 1;
//preload images
var numImages = 13;

Ajax :: Code Works Only Once In IE6/7?

Oct 19, 2010

I'm attempting to learn Ajax and the simple test program I wrote works great in all major browsers (IE8, FireFox, Opera, Chrome, etc).The javascript calls a tiny perl program to replace what is in the <div> area with a random number.The problem I'm having is the code does work in IE6 and IE7, but unlike the other browsers you can only click on the link to activate the AJAX function one time. After the second or more clicks it will not provide a new random number like it does in the other browsers.The only way I found to get a new random number in IE6/7 is to first clear my temporary internet files. The I get one more click and it provides a new random number but stops again until I re-delete my temporary internet files.The test program is located here:

http:[url]....Here is the complete code:

Code:
<html lang="EN" dir="ltr" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<HEAD><META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">[code]..........

Displaying Upper ASCII (code 128-255) In Alert() Window.

Jul 23, 2005

Most of these characters are not on the standard keyboard.
Here's a successful contrivance, with comments & cautions,
a little page that works in IE6.

<HTML><HEAD><SCRIPT TYPE="text/javascript">
function alt() {
document.all.s1.innerHTML="Current Temp: 68F";
var txt=document.all.s1.innerText;
alert(txt);
}
</SCRIPT></HEAD>
<BODY>
<INPUT TYPE="button" VALUE="Temperature" onClick="alt()">
<P ID="s1" STYLE="visibility:hidden"> </P>
</BODY></HTML>

comments: The innerHTML property is needed to produce the
character glyph from the entity code. If the entity string
were passed to innerText(in 1st statement) then the code
would remain literal.

This work-around depends on s1 being rendered before alt()
is called. It will not work as immediately executed code,
because element s1 would not exist yet.

cautions: Trying to style alert's display will produce error
msgs. Do not use <B>, <U>, or <I> tags in the argument
string. No Heading tags either.

Strange enough, an inline STYLE, setting font values, say,
does not give error msg, but will not execute either.
Alert ignores it.

You can use <BR> tags in the argument, which give the same
result as
in a direct arg to alert().

In sum, you can tell alert what characters to display,
in what order, and on what line, but you cannot tell
alert HOW to display them.

JQuery :: Code Works On One Server, Not On The Other?

Apr 27, 2011

I am using a jQuery script to create charts called Highslide. I posted for help on their forum but they are a little slow, and this issue is really regarding a javascript error, I believe.

This issue happensoccasionallyin Internet Explorer 8, where the chart wont appear at all and throws an error. If you refresh the page again, it will display the chart fine. Ive been through this code and can not find what the problem is. what is odd, is if i put the code up on another server it works the first time.

The same issue applies if I switch the order of isNan(hours) and isNaN(mins)

Some DOM Javascript Code Works Only In Firefox 2.0, Not 1.5, Why?

Mar 1, 2007

I have some code, using all the DOM documentation in the developer.mozilla.org website. For some reason it's only working in the newest Firefox 2 versions, and not 1.5.0.x

I'm having a hard time finding any documentation of what's not supported.

Can you guys help me? Here are the functions I'm calling:

getRangeAt();

range.collapsed

document.createElement("div");

range.cloneContents();

element.appendChild(clone);

document.getElementById("divid");

do you think it's createElement div? Maybe I can't create a div element?
